Lol, well memphis you sound like a senior citizen still living life to the fullest.

happy you like your R/T since you had a Roadrunner, dart, and a big block Camaro to compare it to.

Shhoooottt,

My 5.2 4x4 auto has a lot of traction issues at stoplights with my 3.91 gears. As for the tailgate, I have an aluminum folding tonneau which adds a good amount of weight over the bed. This is also with 31" tires too.
One time I not only spun the tires, I actually smoked them and left two short tracks behind me!
That was on a colder day though. Now that it's 75-90* out I can still spin them but not as much.

Try driving a r/t sometime, If I punch it from a dead stop I actually have to steer the truck from going sideways!
